Pujya Pappaji has been a successful industrialist and is known for his versatile personality and dynamic leadership. He began his career in 1948 as a trader in sugar and chemicals in Kanpur. He then went on to become an industrialist of repute and a very successful businessman. His meteoric rise from a small trader to a big industrialist can be attributed to his intelligence, hard work and business acumen.
Unfazed by his material success, he embarked on a journey to spiritual awakening when he struggled to understand the diversities of life. He found solace in the writings of Shrimad Rajchandra and aspired to meet a Living Master. He found his mentor in Shri Bhogibhai Sheth, a disciple of the great Shrimad Rajchandra. Shree Bhogibhai inspired him with his thoughts and Mr. Mehta guided by the light of knowledge and spirituality, incarnated the philosophy of Vitraag Vigyaan, the science of self-realization. He could not escape the eyes of true seekers and the compassion has been flowing ever since……which led to the formation of Shrimad Rajchandra Gyan Ashram (now known as Shrimad Rajchandra Aatma Tatva Research Centre) at Parli, Off Khopoli-Pali Road in the Raigad District of Maharashtra.
Sa-Ni-Sa team recognizes this venture as his gift to them and aspires that under his guidance, it brings about a spiritual evolutionary experience for all.
